On NetBSD, not other systems. I am trying to get the code to be more portable
when it is compiled in other OS's. The choice is to either override the native
OS's ctype.h and use our own, or cast. Casting is more portable, but more
disruptive. If the consensus is that we should not be casting, then I'll
back out the changes and fix the header file.
